9.1 Excellent
Pros:For the price and for being a motel, the room we were in was great. It was recently remodeled. The bed was comfortably firm, and the microwave and fridge was very useful. I loved that there wasn't gross old carpet in the room (it was laminate flooring). We didn't bother checking if they served breakfast because of covid.

Cons:I think the A/C filter needed to be replaced with a new one. We had to use the A/C because of the heat outside, but it caused our sinuses to get incredibly stuffed up. The shower curtain smelled bad once we used the shower.

3.7 Poor
Pros:Convenient location right off the highway. Also close to Jack's restaurant and a nice coffee shop, which is important because the continental breakfast is a joke.

Cons:This would be acceptable as a cheap motel if it was priced like a cheap motel. Perhaps there was some local event driving a price spike, but this was a Tuesday. Staff was not particularly welcoming. Bizarrely, various articles in the room bore logos of other hotels for some reason.

8.5 Great
Pros:I'm a photographer living in Yosemite, so I am usually out all day. When I am in the room I found the hotel to be easy to find, near a local restaurant I like and parking is close to all rooms. Lots of TV channels, and an AC unit that is very cold were also very nice. Overall I think I will return for the fall photo season.

Cons:My room was near the janitorial closet which had some sort of phone or intercom going off quite often. The room lights were also a little harder to find and not incredibly bright, but I blame that more on the bulbs than the number of lights.

6.0 Okay
Pros:Nice town and easy for walk everywhere. Nothing special in this motel. Staff was nice and room was clean. Ok for 1 night stay.
